Working at Aston University - Student Engagement Assistant
A typical day at work would be mainly administration duties, meetings and also arranging events with students. Aston University offer the chance to develop new skills by offering a range of training courses in presenting, how to use online systems and also a lot of courses on using MS packages. The workplace is overall friendly and very welcoming therefore it is easy to build working relationships.
The most enjoyable part of my job, is as a Student Engagement Assistant, I get to work with students on improving the student experience. This includes assisting academic societies with events, which is enjoyable because you get to see the events come to life whilst putting in the hard work, which is very rewarding.
I learnt a lot about time management and also developed written communication as well as my telephone manner.
